National Public Lands Clean-Up Day

By Nathan Elliott

EIGHT SLV OUTDOOR Adventure Club members volunteered to help clean up our public lands. The group checked in at the recreation area below the Clarks Hill Dam, received a tee shirt, trail bar, one-day pass to a national park and a ticket for drawings to be held after lunch.
One of the rangers escorted our part of the group of worker to which we were assigned to the Deer Run Trail along the river on the Georgia side. We were issued tools to cut shrubs and trees along the trail, as well as, trash bags for picking up rubbish on the trail and shoreline. The other part of this group was taken to the other end of the trail, and we all worked toward the center. We cut and cleared the areas along the trail to make it wider where needed, pulled weeds and vines, cleared debris and picked up trash. We worked from about 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. (finishing 30 minutes earlier than expected).
After we turned in our tools and trash bags, we walked back along the trail to our vehicles and returned to the recreation park below the dam. The Corp and their volunteers prepared hot dogs, hamburgers with all the trimmings, baked beans, salads, chips and brownies for the numerous volunteers that signed up for this very worthwhile clean-up day. 
It was a fun day!
